I was there saturday , the water was higher than ive ever seen it in 20 years, you cant even see the trails , you just have to follow the edge of the higher brush , its easy riding.

Anyone have an update on the water level in the marsh? I know it hasn't rained in a bit.

Was there on Saturday. Water in the regular trails. Side runs are hit and miss.

Pretty sure it's a nice slide still.

Enjoy!

Still had water in marsh on Friday. However, it is going down. Only a couple dry spots that can be driven around currently so I would think you are good to go.

I wanted to get off in the marsh but was riding solo with my son and didn't know the trails so I stayed around the lake edge. Can't wait to go out and explore some.

I rode KCOL last Saturday. Went as far as Square Pond and that was dry virtually the whole way. Looked like there was water from Square Pond heading up toward Hole In The Wall. Saw a number of boats head that direction but pretty tough running just to get to Square Pond.

Nice video with the kids!

However, i couldnt find where you were in the marsh? Just saw the edge of the lake and a pavillion.

Would like to know if theres any moisture in the marsh right now. Everyone says its bone dry. Fun to do the dry marsh occasionally but it sure eats up the fuel!

I noticed that too...

Was up there 2 weeks ago, saw I boat enter behind BS hill and they were hammering on it pretty hard for awhile. Didn't sound stuck, but sounded like they were working it pretty good. Stayed on Lake Hatch and a large majority of the inside trail was dry. Pray for rain.

Kissimmee chain is low as we have seen it pre 08 if you remember back in early 2000 marsh went dry and stayed that way for couple years, heck KRVSA had to have chain saw party to keep dead river open and even in 08 Hole in the wall was weeds boat high from dirt dobber to lake Cypress. So lets hope we get our summer rain early or it be 4 wheeler country in the marsh again. :banghead:
